Not only does it give you caffeine, which helps you feel alert, it also helps make bowel movements easier as well.
Where a study, the results of which will be presented at the conference (Digestive Disease Week), found that the role of coffee in the defecation process is not due to the presence of caffeine in it.
The researchers behind the study were able to find this result by targeting several types of coffee, some of which are decaffeinated, and studying their effect.
Based on their experience, the researchers noticed that the muscles of the large and small intestine are more able to contract in order to get rid of stool and waste, after drinking coffee.
The researchers pointed out that this means that coffee has the ability to increase the speed of bowel movement, and this is not dependent on the presence of caffeine at all.
In addition, the researchers noticed that the stool that was produced by consuming caffeinated coffee had less bacteria in it, compared to that produced by decaffeinated coffee, and this means that coffee had an effect on the intestine.
On the other hand, there are many health benefits of coffee in moderation, which include:
- Reduce muscle soreness and spasm
- and enhances his health
- Reduces the risk of colon cancer
- Strengthens the brain and protects it from Alzheimer’s disease.
